This tiny little bakery is in the same strip mall as Jenni Pho and Fausto’s on South Rainbow. The owner/chef is a former member of Craftsteak’s pastry team. Unfortunately, there’s no monkey bread to be found here. The interior is sparsely decorated and the selection of items is modest. I’ll chalk that up to the store being new.

The items they did have looked pretty good and I purchased three, all for around $2.50. The wife had an apple turnover, which I didn’t get to try. The pecan sticky bun was decent sized and as moist and gooey as sticky buns should be. The chocolate croissant was delicate, flaky, and not overwhelmingly sweet, reminiscent of some of the better chocolate croissants I’ve had in town.

The place might not look like much but it’s got a lot of potential. Right now it looks like they probably make most of their income from custom cakes. As business grows, hopefully their display cases will too.
